Annagreth Brem MA, Counsellor & Supervisor, MBACP (accred), HCPC Registered
I have over 28 years NHS experience working in psychological services in adult mental health. In my private practice I work with a wide variety of concerns, such as relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, feelings of emptiness, problems with coping and lack of confidence.
There are many reasons why you might be thinking about individual counselling, from dealing with adverse life events to feeling overwhelmed by difficult feelings that seem to have little obvious cause but disrupt your personal life.
You may be considering counselling because you want to understand yourself and your relationships better - either personally or in your workplace; or you may be considering talking about something painful or difficult that you have been struggling with for some time.
I offer a safe and confidential space where you will not be judged. I can help you make links between your present difficulties and your past experiences. Recognising and understanding your problems will help you to cope better and feel more in control of your life.
In the first consultation you have the opportunity to tell me about your concerns and what has brought you to consider counselling, and you can get a sense of how I work. At this stage you may wish to think about what we talked about before you decide whether you feel counselling offers a way forward.
Sometimes it is useful to attend therapy as a couple in order to address difficulties between you in a supportive and neutral environment. Sessions can help you understand your relationship from another perspective, and help you to discuss difficult feelings, different values or expectations with the help of a therapist. To enable you to think together about your relationship and what you can do to change your situation for the better.
Even a short number of sessions can help you communicate more clearly, clarify your concerns and enable you to think together about your relationship, and what you can do to change your situation for the better.
I am experienced in working with both same-sex and heterosexual couples, whether married/in a civil partnership, living together or apart, separated or divorced. I am committed to working respectfully with different cultural or religious beliefs.
Issues that can helpfully be addressed in couple work include:
Deciding whether or not to stay together
Recovering from an affair
Working through the process of separation/divorce
Understanding and managing conflict and disagreement
Impact of a serious illness
Impact of life events such bereavement, unemployment
An Initial Consultation will give you the opportunity to discuss whether Couples Counselling might be appropriate for your needs, prior to any on-going sessions.
